Summary

Four episodes of machinations and manipulation from the classic BBC political satire. Open Government/Big Brother/The Economy Drive/The Writing on the Wall

The sustained dry wit of the dialogue and the wonderful interplay between the three main characters; Jim Hacker, Sir Humphrey and Bernard Wooley; made Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay's satirical comedy compulsive viewing. The strength of the writing makes these audios a joy to listen to.

Great wit, wordplay and machinations

If you enjoy verbal sparring, political machinations, making fun or government or non-slapstick British humor; you will really enjoy this. Comedy where the more you pay attention the more you will enjoy it.
